Industrially made mezcal. Nothing more to say.
IMO, may be a good mixer, but for the price, better options out there that fill that purpose. This “innovation” of being a cristalino just strips the juice out of its potential richness and complexity. Feels thin and watered down, some smoke, no depth, vanilla notes come out, but maybe due to some additives present. Falls on the entry level mezcal section, but I would not recommend for sipping after getting used to higher proofs and better quality juice.
IMO, just not worth its price point on what I would consider paying for a mixer. I would not even suggest it as an entry level mezcal, as there are other by far less expensive and better options in the market with more depth and complexity.
The bottle tells you more than the juice. Wanted to like it, but fell flat among others. Slight sweetness that fades away quickly, burnt rubber taste, herbaceous, but distant in flavor compared with other sotol brands with similar abv.
Amazing value on this sotol. Defintely what I was expecting. Very herbacious, nice punch from the abv, sweet, does not linger, but phenomenal for the price. I will definitey get a second bottle.
Hands down one of the best jabali expression I’ve had so far. Killer combo again from MM on this lot.
Not the best representation of the “commercial stereotype” of mezcal. Excessive smokiness, no depth, no complexity. For the price tag, you may find way more interesting juice out there. I would only suggest this for cocktails.
Good juice, but not worth the price.
Simply amazing Raicilla.
Lorenzo & Tomas Virgen / 6 Magueyes: Ixtero Amarillo, Alineno, Motosierra, Cimarron Enano, Cimarron Prieto y Cenizo. 47% abv. Region of Chancuellar, JAL.
Unbearable. Pretty much the same as the previous review. Pungent, nail polish smell on the nose. Acetone.
Petrol smell and a lot of smoke. Some floral and citrus hints. Entry level mezcal. Would only mix with it, but not sip neat. For the price, way better and more complex mezcal options out there.
One of the best pechuga’s I’ve tried. The fact that they use grana cochinilla to give that reddish color to it, makes it unique. A lot of cinnamon and anise on the nose. The abv level amps up the citrus notes and smokiness. Perfect dessert spirit for me.
Best Pechuga so far from Melate. I agree with previous reviews on the nose right away getting tons of different fruits. I liked it is not as sweet as it smells. Very enjoyable.
Caught me off guard, but in a great way. Another solid batch from Maguey Melate. This is the first Pulquero I’ve tried. I suck at explaining smells and taste compared to previous reviews, but I can assure you this is an amazing one. Saluuuuuuu!
One of the best Agave Coyote I’ve tried alongside Dixeebe 1st edition and Maguey Melate’s Noe Garcia. I love the clay on this one. A lot of earthiness and minerality. Some spice as well that lingers. For me it could easily be an all day sipper.
Tried 2nd edition lot. Amazing tepeztate. Right from the start, the nose shows a lot of citrus, spice and very herbal. Very well bodied.
Excellent entry level spirit from Bosscal brand. Sweet on the palate with all the characteristics of an agave cenizo. I wish it could have a higher proof, it would be way more enjoyable.
Clay at its best from Alipus. I’m a sucker for it. I tried the 50/50 arroqueno and espadin and it is an exciting ensamble, very enjoyable. Sweet on the palate too. Great stuff.
Amazing ensamble. There is a particular earthiness that I’ve always found on the expressions I’ve tried from Alipus before. I got citrus on the nose. The tepeztate jumps out right away and a lot of freshness from the tobala comes out. For me, this is a very solid one from this brand.
